If you just want to see if the text is there this command will return
true or false:

ie.text('My Test').exists?

If you're looking to do test assertions throughout, you'll need to
decide what kind of framework you want to use.  The basic frameworks
are Test::Unit and RSpec, but there are lots of others out there
(Cucumber, Rasta and WatirCraft, to name a few).  Most people these
days are moving to RSpec, but some of us still use Test::Unit.
There's lots on information available on each of these and some
example frameworks on the wiki:  http://wiki.openqa.org/display/WTR/Examples

Hope this helps!
